“At Argonne National Laboratory, the Meissner Effect is the expulsion of a magnetic field from a supercomputer during its transition to the superconducting state.” -Accessed September 17, 2020, from U.S. Department of Energy flickr account (Link opens in new window).

Walther Meissner and Robert Ochdenfeld discovered the Meissner Effect (shown above) in 1933 by measuring the magnetic field distribution outside superconducting tin and lead samples. This information is courtesy of the U.S. Department of Energy.
